On this day in 1936, the first issue of the pictorial magazine Life 
was published, featuring a cover photo of the Fort Peck Dam’s
spillway by Margaret Bourke-White.

Life actually had its start earlier in the 20th century as a different
kind of magazine: a weekly humor publication, not unlike today’s
The New Yorker in its use of tart cartoons, humorous pieces and
cultural reporting. When the original Life folded during the
Great
Depression
, the influential American publisher Henry Luce
bought the name and re-launched the magazine as a picture-
based periodical on this day in 1936. By this time, Luce had
already
enjoyed great success as the publisher of Time, a
weekly news
magazine.

Twenty-four high-ranking Nazis went on trial in Nuremberg, Germany, for
atrocities committed during
World War II.

The Nuremberg Trials were conducted by an international tribunal made
up of representatives from the United States, the
Soviet Union, France
and Great Britain. It was the first trial of its kind in history, and the
defendants faced charges ranging from crimes against peace, to crimes
of war, to crimes against humanity. Lord Justice Geoffrey Lawrence, the
British member, presided over the proceedings, which lasted 10 months
and consisted of 216 court sessions.
